What's Left of Us
A Memoir of AddictionBook - 2009
The harrowing true story of the life of Richie Farrel and his descent into addiction. To overcome a birth defect, his father pushed him to become a star athlete - sometimes he would use a belt as a teaching tool. Once, he used an electric carving knife. By the time he was 30, Richie was a heroin addict, stealing from friends, shooting up during visits to his children and running from shameful family secrets. In this harrowing, astounding memoir, Richard Farrell chronicles a life of desperation, violence, lies and the pure oblivion of heroin.
